Illusions










When Ripp dreams, he is in a wonderful place.


Where everything has gone right the first time,


And he is right where he wants to be.





Where life, although not perfect,


Is as close as it can possibly get,


And he wouldn't want it any other way.







When Ripp dreams, he is not alone.


He is surrounded by warmth,





And it isn't just another one night stand.


Because he loves this man beside him,


More than anything else in the world.





With each breath, he feels safer - more secure.


He is loved.




When Ripp dreams, he is happy.


Because everything is right with the world.





Because his family is complete.


He is complete.




But then Ripp wakes up.





He is cold, and beside him lies an empty spot.


He is alone,





And realizes that maybe this was meant to be.




Notes: I actually had this drabble thought out a month ago, but I haven't been in the right mood to flesh everything out the way I wanted it to. Hope all liked it; it's a bit rough, but I'd love to hear comments and feedback anyway.

Thank you for reading!

As lovely as this is, all you've really done here is make me want more.

I want to see more of Ripp and Johnny, I want to know the story behind those scars (physical, and emotional). I really like the way you're exploring this relationship piece-by-piece, and I'm hoping for more background on what's brought them together, what's keeping them apart, why Ripp feels that he is possibly meant to be alone (I find this particularly interesting, since Ripp is a Romance sim).

I especially like how it's kind of sad without being depressing. Bittersweet, I guess. I'm looking forward to your next story.

Wow... ; u;

This comment actually somewhat moved me. I'm really glad you want to see more; although I've been busy and unable to put thoughts to words, there's just so much I'd like to put on the table and develop.

Thanksgiving break is on its way, so hopefully I will be able to post another story before then or during. Thank you for reading!
